@maslows you aren't the first person to have those same thoughts. Sadly, the reps told me to not hold my breath on that one.

It's alive!
Those quick disconnects are hideously out of place. The anyone know if I can use acrylic tubing?

Yes you could. You'll have to change all your fittings for hard tubing ones and of course some acrylic tubing. thumb.gif

The only problem i have with this block is the camo is not an exact match to the mobo color wise unless the lighting is throwing it off ?

Yes and no. The white camo pattern on the waterblock is an exact match to the motherboard in color and orientation, the difference is that the rest of the camo pattern on the block is clear so what you see is the nickel covering of the block as the pattern in suspended on a layer above the block itself. The motherboard has a dark grey for the opposite color to the white. The nickel is a different shade than the grey printed on the motherboard, but I still think it looks great. Even better with some of that matching ram from Crucial.

I've thought about installing LEDs in mine, but it's pretty far down the list. I've actually never seen one with leds installed. This pic from the EK website may show it with leds, but if it does they don't look all that impressive. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/650x/040ec09b1e35df139433887a97daa66f/i/m/img_0591.jpg
